A deeper look at taurus

The sign of Taurus teaches us to set the bar higher on our lives. Ruled by Venus, it is about luxury, beauty, and “the good life“. When Venus is in Libra, she focuses on Relationships, but home in Taurus, she wants comfort, she wants beauty, and she has little tolerance for idiocy. Life is the art for Taurus, and that means living well with comforts and a sense of satisfaction at the end of the day.

Taurus, being a fixed earth and represented by the bull, shows they are very solid, grounded, and unmoveable if they don’t want to move.

Taurus natives are sensual folk–and this includes sex, but extends to pleasures in all areas: they delight in the sensual pleasures of food, a comfortable blanket, a richly colored aquarium to look at, the smell of flowers or spring rain, pleasing melodies coming from their stereos, and so forth. Some might even say they live through their senses more than most.

When Taurus natives work, they work hard. They do it with a steadiness that may rarely be considered quick–rather it’s a dependable, plodding, and steady effort that has its payoffs. Security is immensely important to Taurus–some of them actively seek wealth, while others are content to be “comfortable”. The Taurus definition of “comfortable” may not be exactly the same as the rest of the signs, but comfort is definitely a driving force.

The possessiveness associated with Taurus shows up in all areas of life in some way. Taurus likes to own things (and sometimes people). A nice home, a piece of land (this can be modest), a paid-off car, that aquarium mentioned earlier, a couple pets, maybe a solid business…In love and relationship, there is an earthy kind of possessiveness that may be considered jealousy by some, but there is actually quite a difference between being possessive and being jealous. Taurus natives are rarely jealous and petty. They do, however, think of the people they love as theirs–it adds to their sense of security.
